We are excited to announce the first of several iconic, and highly anticipated covers by the late Don Brautigam. Don illustrated some of the most recognizable covers of Stephen King novels. For November and December 2018, we will be releasing our regularly scheduled print, as well as a bonus Don Brautigam print in the middle of each month.

This month, we have Brautigam's illustration for the first US edition paperback of The Stand. Although The Stand was published in late 1978, it would not be released in paperback until 1980. Brautigam is widely considered the pioneer of using black paint on book illustrations, which revolutionized the illustration industry. His mesmerizing color work which redefined paperback and hardcover jacket art is on glorious display here, available for the first time in its original form and without cover text. Brautigam's cover of The Stand was awarded Cover of the Year by Marketing Bestsellers in 1980.

With a recent sale I finally broke down and purchased this art print. It's one of my favorite book cover art. The pictures don't do it justice. The real thing is just amazing! I can't wait to get it framed.

Love The Stand paperback artwork

In 1981, I purchased the paperback of The Stand. While reading the book, I would pause and stare at this cover before continuing on. Now it's 2019 and I still stare, with amazement, at this artwork. Don Brautigam created art that was simply hypnotic. Why would you not buy that book with that artwork? The artwork alone made it worth everything. As soon as I was able to own a piece of this art, I jumped at it. Now I can sit and look at this remembering those days and Don's art.
